Blueberry Orange Steel Cut Oatmeal
- 3 C Water
- 1 C almond milk
- 1 C steel cut oats
- 1/2 C fresh blueberries
- 1/2 C Heidi Ho Pure Ne Chèvre
- 1 large orange, peeled and separated into slices
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 Banana, sliced
In a large saucepan, bring water and milk to a simmer over medium heat.
While that’s heating up toast the oats in a skillet over medium heat for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
Stir the oats into the simmer water/milk mixture slowly and reduce the heat to low. Stir in salt and vanilla extract and continue to simmer for about 20 minutes or until the mixture is very thick.
Meanwhile, combine blueberries, Heidi Ho Pure Ne Chèvre and 2 orange slices in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If needed add a splash of almond milk.
Once oats are fully cooked portion them into 2 serving bowls. Seperate the blueberry ne chèvre mixture into the serving bowls and garnish with, orange zest, fresh blueberries, orange slices and sliced banana.
This recipe was delicious. You may remember my first episode of season one: “The Best Darn Oatmeal You’ll Ever Have” This oatmeal was also very good. A few things I would do to make it better: I used apple juice instead of water but that was too sweet. I think I would use ½ apple juice and ½ water. I would also want to make a larger batch to be more time efficient. Toasting the oats is a really nice touch and I’d do this again.
I LOVE the Heidi Ho Pure Ne Chevre and am excited about using this awesome product in other recipes. I think this is a great recipe for a “fancy” breakfast and look forward to making this for special guests. The health benefits of all these ingredients are legendary; what a great way to start the day!
